Business Developer (Headhunter)

Reference ID:

Proforce is growing! We are currently looking for a business development specialist to join us in our mission: help our candidates and clients grow!

The Team

Our food, fashion, and home department specialize in recruiting and headhunting talented employees for the Canadian industry; from manufacturing to distribution, and retail. We all work in sync to bring the best of the workforce to join our clients from all over Quebec and Ontario. We are all bilingual and work in both English and French!

What we Do

We love to call our clients and prospect new ones. We thrive to find the best candidates for each opportunity in the shortest possible time. We love to meet new candidates and build long-term relationships with them. Our team is focused on the growing industry that is food in Quebec and Ontario, on the growth that both our clients and candidates seek, and on the many aspects of the recruitment business.

How Do We Do It

Our ways are both very old-fashioned and very modern. We cold call, visit our clients, meet our candidates face-to-face, shake hands at networking cocktails. We also recruit directly from social media, use apps to design our job ads, and work on a very powerful recruiting software. The heart of our job is understanding the position we are trying to fill (hard and soft skills needed, corporate culture) and recruit motivated candidates in any way to stay on top of the competition.

We offer:

A stimulating environment: internal competitions (performance contests and ridiculous bets), goals and KPI (linked to a great commission plan), weekly status meeting and priority food meeting;
Continuous training with the associates, online seminars, industry conferences, Fancy 5@7, and networking events;
Flexible on the work schedule;
Offices in a century building in the Old Montreal, near the Old Port’s promenade and attractions, restaurants, bars and Metro stations;
Friday PM activities every week to kick-start the weekend;
Your own pair of Orange Converse! They are our team’s trademark when we assist to food industry network events.

We are looking for:
Experience in business development (sales, cold calling, and clients prospection);
A strong desire to learn and grow;
Goal oriented personality;
Bilingualism (ability to work in English and French); 
An interest for recruitment—people skills;
A colleague we can count on, have fun with, and with whom we will grow!

Are you a fit? Please apply online, we’d love to meet with you! We are looking for a personality fit more than a perfect record, so if you like what you read apply and we’ll talk.
